Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2001 Impala. Pressed unlock on vehicle remote at 4:30 am. The headlights were supposed to come on and did not. I tried the headlight switch, and still no headlights. Two days later, the headlights came on momentarily, then went out. The headlights haven't worked since. I talked to a mechanic that agreed that the multifunction switch has gone bad and needs replacement. He has replace quite a few.

Headlights went off for several seconds, at night, and came back on working the dimmer level. Thank god we were not in heavy interstate traffic. No manufacture should be allow design headlight circuits that can malfunction through faulty switches. Why were the allowed to defer from the old way going straight from battery? my repair source indicates this is not an new problem. I understand there could be problems with the wiring plugs overheating, since there is a "jumper "supplied with replacement. Five day order replacement.original owner

While driving the vehicle stalled while driving 70 mph, the passenger side headlamp blew, the roof molding was lifting on both sides, the drivers side window leaks air and the window hits hard in the top of the door jam, when going over bumps the vehicle shakes and there is a clunking noise under the vehicle, the dealer replaced the steering shaft and the tie rod ends yet the problem still exist.
